This morning I was reminded of why there are forums like this. I took my '98 Sport to the local Chrysler/Jeep dealer to have the 'check engine' light reset. This is the first time I have taken this baby in for a checkup since I purchased it three weeks ago they gave it a "free courtesy check". Got a laundry list of things that needed to be done from rotating tires to tranny flush, cooling flush, on and on, you get the picture. They did clear the code for me which was caused by the NSS giving a poor shifting signal, that's why it would not shift into hi gear/drive before I cleaned the NSS. They tried talking me into having the "internal" transmission sender replaced. I caught them at that and the faces were sorta red Embarassed . I did have the throttle body cleaned up from carbon and had new plugs installed. cuda did it myself Rolling Eyes . To make a long story short after almost four hours of reading old car mags, three cups of coffee I got a bill of $240.00 of which $197.00 was labor pissed .
Keep all the good info coming this way for us newby's
The one good thing is now I have a firm stand on the condition of the vehicle from an authorized dealer and they did catch a recall on the airbags that they will fix free when they get the part in for me Confused .
